This carefully curated release is the second in a series of 5 limited edition Status Quo 7” singles box sets. Each set covers a decade (in the case of the Eighties there will be two sets) of the band’s UK 7” singles. The music is also available via a digital download code included in the box. Classic Rock said of the first in the series, “This is Quo in their effortless, casually-exalted pomp… The singles box, complete with picture sleeves and choice B-sides, is a delight”.
“The Vinyl Singles Collection 1980 – 1984” features all the 7″ singles from the first half of the eighties including such major hits as What You’re Proposing, Something ‘Bout You Baby I Like, Dear John and Old Rag Blues. This limited edition set takes the listener through the output of a truly seminal band in a transitional period that saw them play the opening of Live Aid and become the nation’s favourite.
The singles, mastered from original tapes, will be presented in their original sleeves (picture and house bags).This Limited Edition release offers twelve 7” black heavyweight vinyl records housed in a rigid lift-off lid box. The box set will also feature a booklet with quotes and chart history on each single along with a selection of rare foreign covers and memorabilia.
Fully supported by the band, “The Vinyl Singles Collection 1980 – 1984” is a phenomenal collection that will be cherished by Quo fans the world over.
Following on from the well-received release in March 2017 of the first collection covering 1972 – 1979, “The Vinyl Singles Collection 1980 – 1984” is a triumphant revisiting of the glory days of one of the world’s most important rock acts.
